Design Education as If Adjuncts Mattered

talk – 20 min | Feb 3 – 10:30

Higher education has come to increasingly rely on part-time faculty to fulfill the curricular demands of teaching. Part-time faculty, however, rarely participate in the challenges of curriculum development, management, and assessment. This presentation proposes a framework for design educators—both tenure-track faculty and design practitioners at all levels of academia—to plan, develop, and evaluate courses based upon service design tools and methods.
